Leading players

Last week, we witnessed Rory McIlroy's comeback after a bit of a rough patch, while Scheffler narrowly missed out on victory due to some putting woes. And let's not forget Mathieu Pavon, who's in the enviable position of being able to turn down invitations to events of this magnitude.

One thing's for sure when it comes to contenders in the Genesis Invitational – previous form around Augusta National seems to be a recurring theme. Champions like Rahm, Scott, Watson, Mickelson, and others have all tasted victory both here and at the Masters, highlighting the significance of experience on these prestigious courses.

Now, let's delve into some key stats and player insights for the upcoming event:

Augusta Form Matters: 

Success at Augusta often mirrors performance at the Genesis Invitational. Rahm and Niemann, the last two winners, excelled in the strokes gained approach, showcasing the importance of a solid tee-to-green game.

Tee-to-Green Prowess:

Driving distance is advantageous, but it's the overall performance from tee to green that separates the winners from the rest. Keep an eye on players who consistently rank high in GIR (Greens in Regulation) stats.

Ludvig Aberg's Meteoric Rise:

Ludvig Aberg's (16/1) rise in the golfing world is turning heads. Despite some chinks in his armour, particularly in chipping, his remarkable versatility and undeniable talent make him a force to be reckoned with.

Noteworthy Contenders: 

While favourites like Finau (25/1) and Thomas (14/1) are on everyone's radar, emerging talents like Nicolai Hojgaard (45/1) and Adam Svensson (90/1) shouldn't be overlooked. And with triple-figure winners becoming a trend, keep an eye out for underdogs like Christiaan Bezuidenhout (80/1) or Charley Hoffman (125/1).

Tommy Fleetwood's Time to Shine:

With a track record of near misses, Tommy Fleetwood (25/1) could be poised for a breakthrough. His recent performance in Dubai and solid putting game could pave the way for success at Riviera.
